Denim and Dining

Here’s an idea to have in your back pocket, literally! Dress up your table with denim.

When I was in Kansas, my mother-in-law gave me a stack of denim pockets. She told me she had seen the idea at a Denim & Diamonds event and had cut off the pockets to all her husband’s worn out jeans, but didn’t have a use for them. 

They will be perfect to corral utensils if I ever host a BBQ, but in the meantime, I love them for a casual family dinner. I just popped my red check napkins and red handled utensils in them and it added a fun vibe to our Labor Day dinner.

These would be great for all the casual gatherings you host this fall:

Tailgates
Neighborhood picnics
Football watching parties
Cookouts

And, I love that this gives new life to all those outgrown, worn out pairs of jeans. Especially when my boys seem to be growing out of theirs faster than I can replace them!

Would you let your table wear denim to dinner?
